Overview

95% of the fruit is from river regions which adds generosity of flavours. 5% New Zealand Sauvignon to give the wine some punch. Wine making techniques included fermentation at elevated temperatures and fermentation with solids. These techniques improve texture and softness without sacrificing varietal expression.

Multi-regional

Expert Reviews

"This is a blend of largely Australian savvy with about five per cent New Zealand savvy. No doubt the Kiwi component lifts the nose in this light bodied wine. Pleasant light-bodied palate with understated tropical fruit characters. Persistent and restrained with nice underlying fruit."88 Points Ray Jordan, West Australian, May 2013

"An interesting move to include 5% NZ sauvignon blanc; the wine is not particularly expressive of its variety, but does have good structure and length, and is good value." 87 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, Jul 2013

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
